The Kingdom 2007


description written by member Zara:

When a terrorist bomb detonates inside a Western housing compound in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, an international incident is ignited. While diplomats slowly debate equations of territorialism, FBI Special Agent Ronald Fleury (Jamie Foxx) quickly assembles an elite team (Chris Cooper, Jennifer Garner, and Jason Bateman) and negotiates a secret five-day trip into Saudi Arabia to locate the madman behind the bombing. Upon landing in the desert kingdom, however, Fleury and his team discover Saudi authorities suspicious and unwelcoming of American interlopers into what they consider a local matter. Hamstrung by protocol-and with the clock ticking on their five days-the FBI agents find their expertise worthless without the trust of their Saudi counterparts, who want to locate the terrorist in their homeland on their own terms. Fleury's crew finds a like-minded partner in Saudi Colonel Al-Ghazi (Ashraf Barhoum), who helps them navigate royal politics and unlock the secrets of the crime scene and the workings of an extremist cell bent on further destruction. With these unlikely allies sharing a propulsive commitment to crack the case, the team is led to the killer's front door in a blistering do-or-die confrontation. Now in a fight for their own lives, strangers united by one mission won't stop until justice is found in The Kingdom.

The Kingdom Movie Review by Movie Addict (7/22/2008)

An excellent look at the differences between the Islamic terrorists and Americans, and how we are also so much the same.

The movie really started slowly, but that is what happens in all relationships. It took time for Agent Fleury (Jaime Foxx) to get close to Colonel Farris (Ashraf Barhom) and get the things they wanted....

The Kingdom Movie Review by Tim (6/26/2008)

The Kingdom was one of those films that came out and sat under the radar for a while. I heard of the movie and remember it being in the theatres but until I actually sat down and watched it I had no idea what the plot focused around. I like going into movies like this because it adds an extra element of surprise when you...

The Kingdom Movie Review by Chris (1/5/2008)

Director Peter Berg already has a history with his film Friday Night Lights, which was excellent. With The Kingdom, Peters directing tells a tale of real world troubles and the war on terrorism. Excellent directing and a good script improve the film on the level of originality. The action scenes, though there are few, are...

The Kingdom Movie Review by Ben (12/24/2007)

"The Kingdom" is the latest from director Peter Berg, and he is quickly making a name for himself as one of the more exciting action directors working in Hollywood today. I still have not seen "Friday Night Lights" or the TV show that it is based on, both which I have heard are brilliant. The only movie of his that I have...

The Kingdom Movie Review by Jarrod (10/5/2007)

'The Kingdom', to me, seems xenophobic, exploiting the fears and worries Americans have about so-called Islamofacists, those crazy Muslims who are always plotting to kill us. The film opens with a horrendous act of terrorism against Americans at a nice little compound in Saudi Arabia, during a softball game, with families...
